Certified Bra Fitter
The idea to start Benefittings came to me a few years ago after my sister began a journey that started with a breast cancer diagnosis in March of 2011. I didn’t know it would be called Benefittings and I didn’t know how or when it was going to happen. But I knew that it was going to happen. I was not only inspired by my sister’s experiences, but also, I was inspired by my mom. My mom used to send me daily inspirational quotes. And one day one hit home so clearly that I knew. I knew it was time to start pursuing this dream seriously so that I could help women like my sister. I have told people I come from a long line of cancer diagnosis. All four of my grandparents, both of my parents, and my only sibling have all been in the doctor’s office on the receiving end of that word, Cancer. “You have cancer”. Their lives were forever changed by that phrase. But it was my sister’s diagnosis, as I sat in that doctor’s office with her that day as we received confirmation of what we had already suspected. It was my sister’s journey with cancer that seemed to have the greatest affect on my life. I guess because we were both in our late 30’s at the time and we each have 2 children that are all relatively close in age. I knew it was time to put my heart into something that would really make a difference. Something I felt really passionate about. I was tired from and tired of the corporate world and I needed this as much as I felt it needed me. And so, Benefittings was born.
Benefittings is a certified-fitter of mastectomy bras, swimwear and breast prostheses.
